I called CAP a short time ago about who was qualified to run these. I was told then that there was no requirement for a degreed person to run these.

If anyone has any documentation that says the staining of IHC slides is NOT high complexity it would help a histonetter out there.  I got an e-mail from someone who is HT(ASCP)QIHC but does not have an AA degree.  Their lab director is threatening their job saying they aren't qualified to do IHC staining.  If anyone has something to refer to it would be helpful for this person.  I already suggested contacting CAP and getting a written response.

I believe IHC is high complexity but not the staining portion.  Since no result is being produced by the IHC tech how can this be high complexity?
